Tiger Cubs from Glen Cove Pack 6, Den 7 recently visited the Glen Cove Youth Bureau to sort hundreds of donations that were received for the Youth Bureau’s food pantry. The Scouts were full of energy as they sorted vegetables, tuna, pasta, rice, spaghetti sauce, snacks and other foods.
Their hard work was welcomed by pantry patrons who were able to fill their bags with many items for their families.
The Glen Cove Youth Bureau pantry accepts nonperishable donations throughout the year. Items that are always needed include cereal, juice, canned meats/fish, pasta and pasta sauce, vegetables and fruit. Perishable items (fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and bread) are accepted by appointment to assure that they reach clients in a timely manner. For more information on the pantry, call Cindy Rogers at 516-671-4600.
